Exquisitely hand-dyed by indie yarn dyer Qing Fibre in the heart of London, Yak Singles is a luxurious blend merino wool, silk and yak. It takes dye beautifully, giving you a yarn that is rich and deep in colour with a lovely sheen. As a single ply, this yarn is perfect for knitting shawls and accessories; it has exceptional drape.
Qing Fibre is a small batch dyer. We recommend that if you are knitting a larger project to alternate the skeins to ensure an even blend of colour.
